After opening the Android Studio you need to find the “Device File Explorer” which you can generally find at the right bottom of the Android Studio. If you have successfully found the option then you can click on it.

5. Select the Device

After clicking on it, you will see a window. At the top of that window, you can see a dropdown with a list of devices connected with your development machine (also includes emulators). Select the device from which you want to see the Realm database. Select the device and expand the data option.

6. Export the realm database file

Find your project with Realm Database and expand it. You will find the files and under that the database which you have created. After finding the database right click on that and save it to any directory.
